‘I’m Really Suffering’- Great Ampong Shares Sad Story

Veteran gospel artiste Great Ampong who is known for several hit songs has revealed he’s having tough in life after being absent from the music scene for almost 7-years now.

He told Graphic Showbiz that money is everything in the music industry and without it, one can thrive for long.

“The last time I released a song was five years ago and that is because I am not getting a producer who will support me financially. Money is everything in this industry and once you don’t have money to record songs, shoot music videos and do promotions then you can forget about making it as a musician.

There are big shows I expect to be on but no one invites me for such events, all is not well with me. Even with my Coronavirus song I just released, I didn’t have money to pay the sound engineer but he recorded it for me because we go way back,” he said.

Great Ampong revealed that he has been able to survive these past years because of God’s grace and other shows other people invite him to perform at.

“Some individuals believe in what I have and invite me to perform for them because they know what I can do. I am not bragging but I can perform my own songs for hours. I have 16 albums to my credit excluding the many features I have done,” he said.

Great Ampong, lamented how he was refused payment after he performed on a huge platform with another circular artist. He mentioned that the circular artist was paid a whooping Gh¢50,000.

“We say we are a Christian country but we do not respect Gospel musicians. Most of the big shows are given to the secular artistes; the last time I was invited for a programme with one big Highlife artiste, I was not paid but the secular artiste took GH¢50,000.

“More so, the big men I know could help me either do not pick up my calls or avoid me when I go to their offices,” he disclosed. He, however, praised some individuals who always came to his aid.

Great Ampong urged churches to help Gospel art because most started from church.

“The churches have money and this is the time to show love to the Gospel musicians but I know they will not because they think it is our individual business and do not want to invest in us,” he said.
